@mooseymcman: Pretty sure it didn't include cut scenes, though I will say that if you've been watching the trailers Konami has been putting out for the Phantom Pain, you've seen most of them.

@mooseymcman: No worries, my friend. I'm sorry for the misunderstanding.
That's kind of shitty for Patrick to say.
Totally agree. If he doesn't like the fact that it costs $19.99-$29.99, that's fine. but for him to say that (which I see as disrespectful to those who plan to buy it) all while having no issues preaching about the likes of Gone Home for $20, is quite hilarious.
Where did Patrick say this wallet line?
I was able to buy the game early from a Mom n' Pop store. I don't get why people are saying the main mission is only 2 hours long. I beat it in 56 minutes and 21 seconds. I'm a tad bit miffed at the game right now, but I'll see how the side missions are before damning the game
So when you beat Nashandra instead of dumping you directly into NG+, you're sent back to Majula. Where the option to go into NG+ is just a choice on the bonfire menu.
Also lighting the torches doesn't do anything other than provide a light source
@redyoshi: My class started with a broken sword. Also, any weapon can break, but I'm assuming you're talking about deliberately shitty weapons. Don't know if they upgrade into anything good, but they exist.
I'm quite sure that the shitty weapons will eventually be able to turn into something good via. Boss Souls like in Dark Souls and Demon's Souls.
That's part of what I like about these games, is that literally every item has a practical purpose
The Boss Soul Weapons don't require base weapons to create. Just a number of souls and a boss soul
@waffles13: If you use two Bonfire Ascetics on the bonfire right before you fight one of the old ones, they get new attacks and use different tactics. You also get a different soul after beating them.
@bocam: Where you get it from is certainly important, but I was wondering more along the lines of how deep into the game is it. If it's a ring you can only get next to the end of the game it's kind of useless, but if I can get it relatively early on then I wouldn't have to waste effigy's like vanity candy :P
If I had to estimate 15 or so hours.
